Programming with the LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer Driver

Take the following steps to create and run a program that uses the LEADTOOLS Virtual Printer Driver.

  1. Start Visual Studio 2008.

  2. From the main menu, choose File->New->Project...

  3. In the New Project dialog box, choose Visual C++ in the Projects Types, and choose MFC Application in the Templates.

  4. Type the project name as LEADTOOLS Printer in the Project Name field.

  5. In the Location field, use the Browse button to navigate to the Examples subdirectory (such as C:\LEADTOOLS22\Examples\VirtualPrinter\CDLL). Uncheck both Create directory for solution and Add to Source Control options. Click OK.

  6. Click Next> in the MFC Application Wizard.

  7. Select the dialog-based application type. Then click Finish. Three folders will be created, entitled: "Header Files", "Resource Files", and "Source Files".

  8. From the main menu, choose Project->Properties.

  9. In the Properties dialog box, choose Configuration Properties then select C/C++ then select Preprocessor.

  10. In right side set Preprocessor definitions property to use LTVXX_CONFIG then click OK.

  11. In Solution Explorer, right-click the Header Files folder, then Add->New Item. In Categories, choose Code. In the Templates, select Header File (.h). In the Name field type Ltprinter. Click Add. Inspect the newly created header file and make sure it is empty.

  12. Add to the Ltprinter.h in the Header Files the following code:

    #if !defined(LTPRINTER_H) 
    #define LTPRINTER_H 
    #if !defined(L_LTPRINTER_API)
